Former Sen. Mike Gravel (D., Ala.) made the case for the confirmation of defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel–on Iranian state-run television.
“I think if [Chuck] Hagel gets appointed or confirmed by the Senate for the Defense Department, I think that will be a plus from Iran’s point of view because I do not think he would get involved in any plan to go to war with Iran,” Gravel told Press TV, which has praised the "anti-Israel" Hagel.
“Hagel would not be a friend of Israel. He would not be an enemy but he would certainly be a lot more circumspect with our relationship with Israel,” he added in the interview.
